  • Weise is public library's best friend

    Comedian Groucho Marx is attributed as saying “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”

    Jim Weise is outside of a dog in a big way.

    Weise was among those who helped re-establish Friends of the Hardin County Public Library last May, and he became president of the organization.

    “We started out with a book sale and had a second book sale,” Weise said.

    After the second book sale, membership grew from around 25 to about 67, he said.

    While the Elizabethtown Police Department is cleaning up the streets, David Berry takes pride in keeping their building in tip-top shape.

    Berry, 69, started working with the city in November of 1992 and for the past decade has been the custodian for EPD after the construction of its current station.

    “This is probably the best job I’ve ever had,” he said. “I wouldn’t leave it for anything.”

    Part of the reason he loves his job are the people he works with. He said they are the “top of the line.”

  • Humble beginnings lead to a prosperous life

    Steve Wright grew up in the west end of Louisville in a row of small shotgun-style houses. He now is the owner of Wright Legacy Group, an investment advisory firm with national reach.

    Growing up, he didn’t realize he was poor because all his friends were poor, too, Wright said.

    He’s worked since the eighth grade. He began with a newspaper route and mowing yards and was employed at a local hardware store, eventually putting himself through college.

  • The Art of Performance: Lessons learned from Clydesdales

    This is the season of the year more people pay attention to the horse world. The Triple Crown of horse racing has just been completed and lots of people paid attention.

    However, the focus of this article is about another type of spectacular horse. Recently, I had the opportunity to be up close and personal with the Anheuser-Busch Budweiser Clydesdales at Grants Farm in St. Louis. Grants Farm is part of the Busch estate and has housed their Clydesdales since 1954.

  • Volunteer's gaming interest part of service to Hosparus

    In a back room at Hos­parus Thrift Shoppe in Elizabethtown, Robert Kiper quietly goes about his business, plugging in a portable stereo system and pressing buttons.

    Except for the cassette tape deck, the system gets a thumbs down. An electronic sewing machine he checks afterward gets a thumbs up.

    Checking electric devices and equipment is part of what Kiper does as a volunteer at Hosparus Thrift Shoppe, where the 24-year-old has donated time and effort for six-and-a-half years.
